About this event

Get your city kid involved with nature & animals this summer!

Our STEM Farm Camps held at Peacebunny Cottage are a unique experience unlike anything else you will find in the Twin Cities! This family farm is only open during camps/formal events and you get a behind the scenes visit with our bunnies and with several animal pals that are normally in a school's STEM classroom.

We love getting kids excited about learning!

Each day campers have opportunities to interact with our rabbits and other animal friends as we learn about how to show compassion and care for living creatures. Kids will also get their hands dirty while helping in our garden, engage in science and engineering activities, play games, and participate in music & craft time. We believe children should experience nature through hands-on experiences.

Our expert educators are ready to teach, lead & nurture your children!

Animal Inquiry Ages 3-7 9:00-11:30am This one-of-a-kind program will give your child the rare opportunity to spend time with live animals and to develop the important science skills of observation, classification and communication. Using a hands-on approach to learning, your child will participate in age appropriate science activities, stories, fun games and creative crafts. The session will include actively caring for our friendly critters, up-close animal encounters and time to record observations. Before it's time to go the students can read an animal themed book or just relax with a favorite creature on the Farm. This one of a kind experience will instill in your child the importance of care, respect and responsibility for all living creatures.

Animal Exploration Ages 8-11 1:00-3:30pm Give your child the opportunity to spend time with a variety of live animals and to develop the important science skills of observation, classification, and communication. Children will be encouraged to make observations, ask questions, and use their sense of wonder about the natural world while exploring ways to be kind and respectful towards animals and their environment.

We will take an in-depth look into animal habitats and animal classification through animal skulls, x-rays and footprints. During the class, we will focus on animal husbandry including weighing and measuring animals. The children will also learn animal handling skills and solve STEM challenges, which involve our animals.
